Some more street art captured by my friend Ginge, this time in Croydon. I absolutely love the wordsearch!
Aaah. The end of a sketchbook is always a momentous occasion for me given how slowly I fill them! I started this one in August 2015 so I’ve not done too badly with it. This one is, I think, entirely filled with holiday entries. I like that this book has evolved into a pure holiday diary, as I now use other books for work-related thoughts and ideas. Not sure what’ll happen with my next book. I’ll be using another rebound Moleskine (see here), but with red covers this time: maybe having a more vibrant cover will lead it to catch my eye more often, reminding me to use it!
Oh, yes, and I’ve decided to move away from using a fountain pen in these. I’m not sure if it’s the ink or the paper (or a combination of the two) but it takes forever to dry. The photo below shows what happened on a far too regular basis, and that was after waiting a good ten minutes before closing the book. I’ll be switching back to pigma micron pens (or similar) as they still use waterproof ink but they dry much more quickly!
Some art from Brighton this time. It’s been a couple of years since I last went to Brighton (click here to view the street art I collected on that trip), but my friend Jill was there in July (yes, I know I’m really bad at getting things up on time!) and was kind enough to take a couple of photos for me. Jill, I’m sorry I was so tardy at blogging these but in a way I’m glad as they’re lovely and cheerful, which is just what we need in January!
Let’s get the new year off to a good start with this bumper crop of art from Glastonbury. Photos courtesy of my lovely friend, Frances, who took these in late November 🙂 There are some really lovely and intricate pieces, but I think my favourite is the stick men on the yellow wall!
Another nice simple piece by Nil227 to see the year out. It was found on the shutters of a shop just at the corner of Harrow Road and Bravington Road, W9.

I made this book in October but haven’t been able to blog about it because it was intended as a Christmas gift. The lady who ordered it asked for something feminine and pretty, and for it to feature her friend’s name. Sorry the photos aren’t great, I made the mistake of sending the book off before checking the photos were straight!
